It is a good idea to find a boarding kennel or cattery that you be comfortable sending your pet to in the future if needed. Visit a few boarding kennels or catteries to find out what is out there.
Make sure the enclosures are secure and clean. Also ask if can if they have a 24-hour vet close by in case there was an emergency.
Find out what vaccinations your pet should have received well BEFORE you need to use the kennel or cattery. Protection against disease in your pet may take up to a couple of months and you don’t want to your pet to be turned away the morning before you are meant to be boarding a plane!
